Cerebral Hypoxia and Receiving Social Security Disability

Your brain is an extremely interesting and unique organ. The center of your nervous system is your brain. Your brain monitors and regulates your body’s actions and reactions. Your brain continuously receives sensory information. It rapidly analyzes this data and then responds by controlling your bodily functions and actions. Cerebral hypoxia is a condition in which the supply of oxygen to your brain is reduced even though there is adequate blood flow to your brain. Technically, cerebral hypoxia is a condition that refers to a lack of oxygen supply to the outer part of your brain. However, cerebral hypoxia is typically used in regard to a lack of oxygen supply to your entire brain. There are four separate categories of cerebral hypoxia that are based on the severity and location of oxygen depravation. They are: Cerebral hypoxia may be caused by anything that severely interferes with your brain’s ability to process or receive oxygen. There are many things that can cause this to happen. Some examples of this are shock, stroke, heart attack, extremely low blood pressure, diseases that cause paralysis of your breathing muscles, asphyxiation from smoke inhalation, compression of your trachea (windpipe), drug overdose, drowning, choking, carbon monoxide poisoning, strangulation and high altitudes. There are several signs and symptoms that may be an indication of cerebral hypoxia. Some of these are: You may have a loved one who has survived cerebral hypoxia. Cerebral hypoxia and/or complications resulting from this condition may have brought about your loved one’s disability and inability to work. As a result, you may need assistance in caring for your loved one. You may need financial help. You may have decided to apply for the financial assistance that you need to care for your loved one from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits on behalf of your loved one because of the disability caused by cerebral hypoxia and/or complications resulting from this condition. You may have already applied and been denied by the Social Security Administration. If you intend to reapply or appeal the denial of your loved one, consider this.
